PhD Conference Postponed until 2021

Normally around this time, we would be sending out acceptance emails for our conference in September, and looking forward to hosting a productive event. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, UEA-DEV has made the difficult decision to postpone the conference until 2021. This decision was based on careful consideration of government guidelines that recommend event cancellations, social distancing, and remote working.


We thank you for submitting an abstract, we have thoroughly enjoyed reading such promising research. We request you to kindly resubmit your abstracts next year when we will be sending out a call for papers.  


Finally, the role of international development studies in helping the public after this current crisis cannot be overstated. We hope that a postponement will enrich the 2021 conference and allow us to showcase research that continues to inform public and scientific discourse.


Together, we will get through this, and we look forward to brighter times ahead next year!
